Week 47 – Documentary: The Victoria Cross

In the skies over Germany during World War II, British paratroopers dropped from planes and silently glided to the ground in an attempt to take a vital bridge and stymie the Germany war efforts. The Battle of Arnhem left thousands of British troops dead, but also led to one of the “finest Victoria Cross of the whole war.”

Major Robert Cain recounts his daring story of battling a German Tiger tank armed with a PAIT to save his fellow troops, as well as a look at the history of Britain’s finest military decoration.
